Very similar but specific. When you hire a Priest he will specifically be able to use spells related to his profession and skill.
To help newer Players I am also thinking about implementing a watch or guard dog as a measure to assist in combat until they can get further along. The dog would essentially absorb blows until dead to give the main Character more chances and time to attack.
